Clinical Experience

Once you successfully complete your first three years of coursework, you will have an opportunity to complete your clinical practicum in cardiovascular perfusion. You must perform a minimum of 75 adult clinical bypass procedures and perform or observe a minimum of 10 pediatric clinical bypass procedures. You will be assigned a clinical instructor who will assist and monitor you throughout your clinical practicum, while you increase your skills, confidence, and independence. While most clinical sites are located in South Florida, relocation may be necessary. Barry’s CVP program is affiliated with the following clinical sites:
